Though the budget seven-inch tablet may have been pioneered by Barnes & Noble, there's no question that the two dominant players in that field today are the Kindle Fire and Nexus 7. The 2013 version of the Nexus 7 is still hot off the press, while Amazon's 2012 Kindle Fire HD is nearing the end of its initial run. While the two are still going head-to-head, why not see how their specs and features compare?  Read More

Barnes & Noble did a bit of flip-flopping today, saying it will continue making tablets li...

Amazon gets a lot of credit for starting the budget tablet craze with the original Kindle Fire. But it was actually Barnes & Noble that released the first subsidized, affordable, 7-inch slate, in the form of 2010's Nook Color. The three generations of B&N's Nook tablets may have been limited by their software, but they also delivered solid hardware and good overall bang for your buck. So we weren't complaining today, when B&N announced that it won't be discontinuing its color Nook tablets after all.  Read More

Although some wheelchair users could conceivably make use of devices like the GoPad, a researcher at Purdue University has developed a motorized wheelchair tray that looks to be a better option for giving wheelchair users convenient access to mobile devices. Employing a motorized arm, the “RoboDesk” can deploy or retract a tablet or lightweight laptop computer as needed.  Read More

The Holho Full Pyramid

Owning a smartphone is a bit like being a kid who got too many toys for his birthday. No matter how many apps you have, you still want it to do something more. Imagination Farm USA LLC, based in Houston, Texas, decided that the something more was the Holho “hologram generator,” which uses a set of mirrors perched on a smartphone or tablet to produce the illusion of a moving 3D image.  Read More

The iblazr LED flash module for smartphones and tablets

Smartphone cameras are great for capturing that spur of the moment memory, but even with a built-in flash, after-dark snaps can look pretty grim. The iblazr team out of the Ukraine has developed a fully synchronized LED flash module that plugs into the audio jack of a phone or tablet. It's been designed to eliminate the white- or red-eye effect, and packs its own battery so it won't leech from the host device.  Read More

Gizmag reviews the updated 2013 version of Google's Nexus 7, the first tablet to combine a...

A couple of years ago, Amazon changed the tablet market when it released the Kindle Fire, with its small screen and even smaller price tag. A few months later, Apple took our eyes to a luxurious spa when it launched the high-resolution iPad with Retina Display. But what we've been really waiting for is a tablet that combines that smaller price and form factor with a pixel-rich display. Well, that day has finally come, in the form of the second-generation Nexus 7. Is it really the best of both worlds? Read on, as Gizmag reviews the 2013 Nexus 7.  Read More

Xplore Technologies has introduced its first rugged Android tablet, the RangerX

When the going gets tough, the tough reach for a rugged tablet. Xplore Technologies has been kicking out ruggedized tablets for over 15 years, but its new RangerX is both its lightest to date, and its first to run Android. Developed for mobile workers rather than adventurous consumer types, the durable ICS slate has a 10.1-inch outdoor-viewable display, features a dual-core ARM processor, and packs enough battery life for a full day's work.  Read More

Nvidia's Ira demo running on the Logan mobile chip

With its new Project Logan mobile system-on-chip, Nvidia has not so much raised the bar as blown the roof off expectations of computer and game graphics on mobile devices. In an impressive display of Logan's "oomph," the company has shown it running Ira, an incredibly detailed and effects-heavy demo of a human head animated in real time. The demo was itself unveiled in recent months, and previously shown running on Nvidia's super-heavyweight GeForce Titan graphics card.  Read More
